INTERNATIONAL. If you had read the Winter 2012 Trends Journal, published in early January, you’d know that we accurately forecast, in detail, virtually everything going on right now in the financial world and in the geopolitical arena.

We respectfully submit that no other publication can make such a claim. It’s all there in black & white, brilliantly illustrated in full-color, award-winning graphics.

As a prelude to discussing the “Top 12 Trends” for 2012, we wrote:

“2012 is the year when many of the long-simmering socioeconomic and geopolitical trends we have been forecasting and tracking will climax.”

And climax they have.

We predicted the Greek debt crisis would not be solved, but would deteriorate, even as European leaders were insisting they had solved it:

“Thanks to our efforts,” bragged French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, “if there had not been an agreement … it was not just Europe that would have sunk into catastrophe, it was the whole world.”

“Agreement” notwithstanding, the whole world is now demonstrably heading toward “catastrophe.”

We predicted an economic development that virtually no one else was forecasting:

“The BRICS will not escape repercussions from the economic decline of the West. For example, as the US and Europe slip deeper into depression and their appetites for foreign imports slacken, China, which sells heavily into those markets, will take a severe economic hit. A weakened manufacturing-based China will adversely affect natural resource-rich exporters including Brazil, Russia and South Africa, among others.”
 
Those repercussions are now being felt worldwide: commodity prices have plummeted, strong currencies have weakened, and exports and imports have slowed dramatically.

Regarding Iran, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Arab Spring, the Spanish Indignados, the newly formed political parties – you’ll find our accurate commentary and projections, chapter and verse, in the Trends Journal: What would happen, why it would happen, and where it would lead.
